Can't override the category looks was created by scripto
Hi Tuan, I want to override the look of category via template override but most of the parts are loaded from common folder such as 
echo DMSHelperHtml::loadCommonLayout('common/documents_default.php
So I have to override the core code (files under common folder components/com_dms/view/common) to get the modification what I want.
Is there a way that I don't have to override core files? So that my modifications don't get override every time there is an update?

Hello

The files from common folder can also be overridden like other files. Just move that modified file to PATH_TO_TEMPLATE/html/com_dms/common folder and it would be fine

Ah I see, I thought that folder is not overrideable because it doesn't appear in the template override interface, and also no tmpl folder inside the common folder. Ok thanks

Although it is not listed (due to a bit different in structure), the layout files on that common folder can still be overridden like any other layouts, don't worry

Regards,
